Bald Eagles and Moose and Lynx, oh my!

One of the attractions here at Beaverland is the extensive wildlife that can be seen everyday. I knew that there would be wildlife here...heck it was one of the reasons we acquired Beaverland in the fall of 2020. But I never thought it would be as amazing it as it has been.



Imagine having your morning coffee at your waterfront cottage, the sun is shining and a pair of bald eagles swoop down and do a flyby just for you. We have a pair of Bald Eagles that visit Beaverland Camp every single morning. Watching them pluck fish from the surface of the water is an amazing site to see.


Or picture this. You are coming back from your fishing trip on Bruce Lake (with a live tank full of Pickerel) and see a Cow moose grazing on the shoreline. She'll look right at you, into your eyes it seems. She won't spook or run away, only to continue grazing. Such a majestic sight to see. I grew up with horses in my life (my aunt had a farm in Brampton, Ontario...if you can imagine farmland on Queen and McLaughlin) and moose are just ginormous creatures.


This past winter we had another visitor to the camp, a Lynx! Mitch was stacking wood and felt something watching him...you know the feeling? He turned around to what appeared to be a wolf. Quickly he ran back to the house to get Sara and her camera. After snapping a few shots as it strolled away, we realized that it was in fact a Canadian Lynx. So cool!


We get so many wildlife visitors here at Beaverland Camp. Some others are:

  • Foxes

  • Redtail Hawks

  • Grouse

  • Flying Squirrels

  • Pileated Woodpeckers

  • Chipmunks and Squirrels

  • Otters

  • Martens

  • Loons and Ducks

  • Cranes

  • ...and Beavers of course!

I could really go on and on, but this shortlist is almost a daily sight. When you come to Beaverland, you will see wildlife.


What have you seen here at the camp? I would love to hear your stories. You can comment on this article or share on our Facebook page.
